Oil and Wax, 16 x 12 inches
This oil and wax painting is part of a series that conveys an impression of the spaces where water finds its way between steep, dominant and ominous rock formations. Though these are relatively small works, there is an intricate blending of colour and a heavy reliance on texture and detail throughout to effectively portray the majesty of the scene.
“The appreciation of art should not be considered as merely a pleasurable pastime. To apprehend beauty is to work for it. It is a mighty and an entrancing effort, and the enjoyment of a picture is not only in the pleasure it inspires, but in the comprehension of the new order of construction used in its making” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
